Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Zdravka Zafirova, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This concise pocket reference provides evidence-based information on anesthesia practice in an easily accessible format.
Purpose: It serves as a succinct, practical guide that anesthesia providers can refer to when they need quick, readily available, up-to-date information.
Audience: Although intended for use by all anesthesia practitioners, anesthesia trainees at all levels will find this book particularly valuable. The chapters are written by experts in the field with contributions from anesthesia trainees such as residents and fellows.
Features: The book impressively covers a comprehensive array of anesthesia topics. Introductory chapters discuss preoperative evaluation and basic principles of anesthesia, including pharmacology, airway management, anesthesia equipment, techniques, and monitoring, as well as recovery room and pain management. The chapters that address a wide range of pharmacologic agents, as well as common intraoperative problems and anesthesia complications, contribute to the educational utility of the book. Discussions of anesthesia for specific surgical procedures highlight unique anesthetic considerations. The guide concludes with some unique and valuable features such as quick review of ECG interpretation, emergency algorithms, medical phrases in Spanish, and an appendix with a multitude of valuable references to physiologic formulae and operating room and anesthesia machine set-up. Tables are abundant throughout and, along with a few well-placed illustrations, enhance the utility of the book as a quick reference. The easily-accessible, pocket format makes this guide useful, but predictably limits the level of detail of the information and the availability and quality of the illustrations.
Assessment: This is a long-overdue, valuable reference for anesthesia providers seeking readily-available, quick access to pertinent, evidence-based information in their daily anesthesia practice.
Anesthesia & Analgesia

Pocket Anesthesia, as the name suggests, offers a concise ring-bound pocket-sized reference guide to the major patient management issues encountered in clinical anesthesia. This new pocket notebook series book comprises 36 chapters with a similar format to the popular internal medicine handbook, Pocket Medicine: The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Internal Medicine. Unique to other anesthesia manuals, Pocket Anesthesia is very compact and literally fits in a coat pocket. Thirty-nine anesthesiology residents, fellows, and attending staff contributed directly to this lightweight, 302-page looseleaf ring-bound guide.

The strength of this textbook is the ease of access to reference information for the perioperative physician. Each chapter includes tables, algorithms, diagrams, and bulletpoint formatted sections that are intuitively organized and extremely compact. Although the reference guide is not intended to describe in-depth discussions of perioperative topics, the book includes pertinent facts related to anesthetic considerations for the management of common disease states, frequent intraoperative problems, considerations for anesthesia subspecialties, and differential diagnoses for perioperative conditions.

The extensive collection of chapters is inclusive of basic concepts in physiology, pharmacology, preparation for anesthesia, management of anesthesia, and postanesthesia care. The manual also includes a few pages for common medical phrases in Spanish, common formulas, lab values, emergency algorithms, management of malignant hyperthermia, and room/machine setup recommendations.

In conclusion, the first edition of Pocket Anesthesia is an excellent reference manual for the field of anesthesiology. The handbook is reasonably priced and can serve as a valuable resource to medical students, house staff, and practicing anesthesiologists who want to have a quick reference source.

    Very practical book

    Just bought this book - very well written. It has all the needed information for learning about each type of anesthesia case. I'm an anesthesia resident. The book is full of practical tables that lists drugs, dosasges, diseases, side effects, etc. I think it's a must for any anesthesia provider.
